Hello! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. How long has it been like that?

What's the model of your phone?

Have you tried to wait for about an hour and see if it will finish downloading?

If that does not work, can you press & hold the power on/off button on the phone for about 15 seconds, then turn it back on and check?

If needed, please remove the back cover, then remove the battery for about a minute, then reinstall, then turn on and check.

Please let me know. Thank you.
